Do Some Mulching
Mulching gives your yard a clean and finished look. However, were you aware that mulch is very helpful to your plants and soil. Here are a few good reasons to mulch:
- Reduce surface evaporation from the soil
Improve water penetration and air movement
Moderate soil temperature fluctuations
Protect shallow-root plants from freeze damage and frost-heave
Discourage weed growth
Improve soil structure and nutrient availability as they decompose
Tree and Shrub Health:
There are many reasons to mulch trees and shrubs in your landscape. The area surrounding your home is very different from the environment that a tree or shrub naturally grows in. In its natural environment trees and shrubs gain nutrients from decomposing plant material that has fallen to the ground or from plants which have died.
In a landscaped area most of this dead or dying plant material has been removed and the surrounding plant material is usually in the form of grass which compete with the trees and shrubs for nutrients. Mulching around the base of the trees in your lawn area boosts the health of trees and shrubs significantly.
